This is not a XFS issue, the kernel doesn't even get far enough to call the XFS mount code. I've looked at your .config and it seems you have devfs enabled, but don't suply devfs-style names in root=

Not necesarily. I have (for a long time, on many systems) used devfs and boot with grub with /dev/hda5 or such. AFAIK the kernel just parses the root device specification into a (major, minor) pair a

With 2.4 kernels you can pass non-devfs names on devfs systems, on 2.6 you can't. for non-devfs kernel that's true. In Linux 2.4 a devfs kernel tries to look it up in devfs in addition and with Linux

Here is what I can report about this unresolved issue. CONFIG_DEVFS_FS is not set. The system has two hard drives, one SCSI, the other IDE. I normally boot from the SCSI drive and use the IDE for bac

Silly question, but do you have a separate partition for /boot, or is it sitting off of / in the root partition? -- Mike Burger http://www.bubbanfriends.org Visit the Dog Pound II BBS telnet://dogpou

That's bogus. The default's for x86 will build MSDOS partition support with CONFIG_MSDOS_PARTITION undefined. Something else is going on. I have plenty of machines which boot of XFS filesystems and I
